Lars Kåre is the man with the original plan and the head honcho for Radix. It started with an early idea in 2017 and in march of 2019 they released the first MVP - a minimum viable product. We’re heading into the clouds at full throttle, and Radix is a part of making this journey easier and more accessible for all.
“You can get your app into the cloud without having to deal with the cloud directly. It removes the need to have specialized knowledge about the cloud services itself,” developer Jonas Peter Sørensen tells us.
Since the name itself is latin for “root”, we’re going to get right down to just that - the root of it all. And at Radix’s core you find Docker containers, a standard unit of software that packages up code and all of its dependencies run apps quickly and reliably. While the platform itself runs on kubernetes users don’t interact with it, developer Jonas Peter Sørensen explains.
“The exciting part about Radix is that it’s very simple to quickly get a working prototype of an app deployed and available. It’s only a matter of minutes from you have an idea to you have it accessible and shareable.”
“You need some knowledge about docker containers but that’s basically all you need to know,” he adds.
Making it quick and easy is one thing, but another main issue the Radix team has been hoping to solve is bringing best practices to the people.
